Brighton & Hove Food Partnership are launching Casserole Club in the city aimed at reducing loneliness through sharing a meal.
The scheme to be rolled out this summer will encourage people to share extra portions of home-cooked food with others who might not always be able to cook for themselves.
The Brighton and Hove Food Partnership, Impetus and Bright Dials are working together to deliver a pilot scheme in Hanover and Queens Park and Central Hove, Goldsmid ,Brunswick and Adelaide areas with the aim to roll it out across Brighton and Hove later in the year.
Director of BHFP Vic Borrill said: “This is an exciting opportunity to deliver a new project in the city to use food to reduce loneliness in the city.”
Cooks will need to sign up on the Casserole Club website to complete a food hygiene quiz and to have a DBS check before they are signed up.
They are holding a Launch Party & Volunteer event on Wednesday 29th June 6-8pm, at The Brighthelm Centre, where people interested in becoming a cook or know someone who would benefit from a home cooked meal, can go along and find out more.
